Bristol City are bracing themselves for big-money offers from the Premier League and abroad for teenage starlet Alex Scott.

The Championship side are readying themselves for a summer fight to retain Scott with interest mounting in the exciting teenager who has been dubbed The Guernsey Grealish.

Scott, 18, broke into the Robins side last term but has established himself in Nigel Pearson’s team this season. He has grown in importance as the campaign has progressed, starting each of their last 19 games, and been in sparkling form.

Currently part of England’s under-19 setup, Pearson has tipped him to go on and play for the seniors.

West Ham’s interest in Scott has emerged, while Everton and Leicester have also been linked but Sportsmail understands they are far from his only admirers with the list lengthy.

City games this season have been swamped with scouts from the top flight’s biggest sides down plus continental clubs all running the rule over Scott.

Primarily an attacking midfielder, Scott has earned comparisons to Manchester City and England star Grealish due to his style of play and appearance.

However he has shown his versatility too, also playing as a wing-back, right and central midfielder and even the holding role, impressing wherever he is deployed.

Bristol City recorded a pre-tax loss of £38m in their most recent financial results so are expected to have to cash in on at least one of their prized assets following this season.

However they have Scott secured on a contract until 2025, putting them in a strong position, and also have a track record of only selling on their terms, getting good money for their most valuable players.

Brighton had to agree a club record £22m to prise Adam Webster away while Lloyd Kelly’s move to Bournemouth is worth up to £20m.

The likes of Josh Brownhill, Bobby Reid and Aiden Flint were also only allowed to leave Ashton Gate for significant fees.
